I didn't even think to post a pic of a sling, lol. I normally run the AR with a unpadded 2 point Viking Tactics QD sling. I have been training lately with a Troy Industries single point, but I just can't seem to like it. It's great for transitions, but I still prefer the functionality and rapid adjustability of the the VTAC.johnnymorgan3 wrote:Some other thoughts. Have a way to sling your gun across your chest and carry it that way. It doesn't do any good on your back and side saddle. Carrying in in a non-deployable position is fine if you're in an area you're 99.9% sure you won't encounter another person, but how often will you be in those places? I would imagine you have some sort of sling already, but is it easily adjustable and does it have a quick disconnect? I would recommend something that either attaches to your LBE by a single point sling on the butt-stock or a single point sling that you wear under your pack and is attached to the rifle where the buffer tube meets the rifle (there are all sort of sling mounts for that purpose). Also, incorporating a military style fanny pack. That way you're carry some more essentials on your person and your balancing out the wraith a little more towards your front. I personally like these (see link).
Also just a quick FYI, the Kifaru Gunbearer is designed for rapid deployment. It's one of the reason I went with it and after training with it, its literally one of my favorite pieces of gear for running a rifle with a pack. I like that my hands are free and the rifle weight is supported by the waistbelt. The gun doesn't flop around at all and its right there when I need it .
For those interested here is a quick vid (not mine) on how the gunbearer works:
